Simone Müller Wins Henrietta Larson Award


The RCC is proud to share the news that Simone Müller's "Hidden Externalities: The Globalization of Hazardous Waste," published last year in the Business History Review, has won the Henrietta Larson Prize for best BHR article of 2019. The article focuses on the chemical retailers Jack and Charles Colbert, who traded banned chemicals throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and shows how they justified their unqual business deals by misappropriating the meaning of recycling. Simone works at the RCC as part of the DFG Emmy Noether Research Group "Hazardous Travels: Ghost Acres and the Global Waste Economy." Congratulations Simone!
